De Gea is the n ° 1 of Rangnick

Manchester United manager Ralf Rangnick told talkSPORT Dean Henderson asked to leave the club in January – but he refused his request.

The keeper, who was not in the squad for their 1-0 FA Cup victory over Aston Villa due to illness, has only made two appearances in all competitions this season.

This is mainly due to the form of David de Gea, who has been the best player for the Red Devils this season.

However, if United let him go, Newcastle would be interested in the 24-year-old, according to talkSPORT reporter Alex Crook.

Crook adds that Henderson is “really unhappy” with his lack of playing time at Old Trafford and asked to leave the club two weeks ago.

The Magpies currently have Martin Dubravka as number 1, but are looking for new signings to avoid relegation to the Premier League.

“I think he should go. He’s at the stage of his career where he needs to play football on a regular basis, ”Bosnich told talkSPORT Breakfast.

“He will know that too. I understand that at the start of the season he is trying in the preseason to see how things are going.

“De Gea has been excellent and there is no doubt, except for the second goal you have to say against Manchester City, which I think he will know he should have saved.
